Earlier, he had promised to do away plastic bottles from the boardroom after a Twitter user urged him to replace the same with steel bottles.
“Plastic bottles will be banished. We were all embarrassed to see them that day,” Mahindra had responded.
This is not the first time that Anand Mahindra has made news over plastic. Earlier, in a video tweeted by him he expressed his admiration for the desi jugaad for showing a plastic water bottle creatively used as a ‘door closer’.
My #whatsappwonderbox is filled with examples of modest, but out-of-the-box thinking applied to everyday problems. This person spent just ₹2 to rig this door closure versus ₹1500 for a hydraulic one! How do we channel this creativity so that we move from Jugaad to Jhakaas! pic.twitter.com/azla5WoyjI— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra)
